A group of graduates in Hospitality and Tourism of the Motheo TVET College in Bloemfontein is off to China to get hands-on experience to prepare them for the job market.

The selected ten candidates’ exchange programme abroad is an initiative of the Culture, Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Sport Sector Education and Training Authority (CATHSSETA).

Lame Morubane, Motheo’s spokesperson, said the exchange programme facilitates skills development through strategic partnerships with the sole objective to contribute towards economic growth. He said the ten students will gain valuable experience preparing them for the job market and envisaged their potential to explore avenues as entrepreneurs in the hospitality and tourism sector.

“The Chinese Culture and International Education Exchange Centre in partnership with CATHSSETA has teamed up to co-sponsor the Motheo TVET College students to go to China to acquire the much-need experience in hospitality and tourism,” said Morubane.

He said the ten candidates were selected by CATHSSETA and the scope of the programme will entail work experiential training in China for 12 months.

Morubane said students of the Motheo College were part of the 120 from seven TVET Colleges in South Africa.

“The purpose of this programme is to provide workshop and workplace experience for TVET College graduates in China.

“This is also to contribute positively to the growth and development of the African economy by bridging the skills gaps for those who have been less fortunate in the past as well as offer them opportunities abroad as interns.

“The funding from CATHSSETA includes return tickets to China, a monthly stipend for one year, and all class fees at the Chinese training institutes,” said Morubane.
